When it comes to apparel for bikers, protection is the first thing that should be considered. After all, bikers have more chances of falling prey to fatal accidents in comparison with other motorists. Therefore, a biker's outfit should be made of tough and durable material from head to toe. Luckily, protective gear doesn't need to be bland; there is fashionable wear for bikers these days. Even men's motorcycle leather gloves are coming in different brands and style these days. You can choose from a large variety of styles and designs, but you should make sure of knowing which motorcycle gloves suit you.
There are two major types of leather motorcycle gloves available in the market: branded and non-branded. Among branded gloves, some are made of goat skin leather with Kevlar stitching. These gloves have reinforced gel-padded palms for absorbing vibration and a vented knuckle protector for comfort and protection. There is perforated goat skin leather between the fingers to allow sweat to evaporate. The fingers are also pre-curved for increased grip on the bike's controls. Other branded gloves have foam padding around the wrist and thumbs with molded wrist guards that protect your thumbs and fingers. Some gloves even feature a free floating knuckle protector for protection and Silicone printed Clarino on the palm and fingertips for increased grip. They also have adjustable Velcro wrists for proper closure of the gloves on your hands.
Goat skin leather is used in a lot of branded gloves. Some manufacturers design gloves with padded knuckles for protection, and use thermolite insulation and soft polyester fleece lining for extra warmth. They have a waterproof and breathable barrier, with a leather throttle guard between the thumb and index finger.
In winter, gloves at times can`t keep the hands warm, even with a couple of layers of insulation used in them. However, there is a solution to this problem and you can keep your hands as warm as you want. If the temperature falls below freezing point, there are men's heated gloves which will keep your hands warm and cozy. These heated gloves feature Micro-wire heating technology. The Micro-wire is woven into a heating matrix within the glove and gives consistent heat coverage to the entire length of each finger, including the thumb as well as the back of the hand. Furthermore, these gloves have waterproof, breathable Aquatex lining. There are electrical plug-ins built in the gauntlet cuffs as well. They have padded palms for protection and a draw-cord closure for fastening purpose. They are really attractive with graphics in contrasting colors. Even though there is just a one year warranty on the gloves, the heating elements have a lifetime warranty.
A branded leather glove has the company's logo on it to signify its uniqueness from other leather gloves. It also tells you that the glove you're out to buy conforms to certain quality standards the brand is known for. If you're specific about what you want, then go for a well-known and trusted brand. On the other hand, if it's ordinary men's motorcycle leather gloves you need, good quality unbranded gloves will do just fine.
